Day 8:  September 20th.  Objective:  Students will evaluate the difference quotient given a function.  Students will translate functions up,down,left, and right.  Notes and Problems:  PC1-5NotesandProblems Glue In:  PC 1-5 Glue In Complete Glue In:  PC1-5NotesScan Class Assignment:  PC1-6Exploration Homework:  p 150 #’s 81-84 all (Just evaluate the difference quotient for each of them).  p. 162 #’s 1-24 all (Make sure to sketch the graph and write the equation for all of them). Helpful Video #1:  Transformations 1  Helpful Video #2: Transformations 2 Helpful Video #3:  Transformations 3 Helpful Video #4:  Transformations 4

Day 7:  September 18th.  Objective:  Students will prove their knowledge by completing a unit test.

Day 6: September 14th.  Objective:  Students will summarize concepts and review for a chapter test.  Review:  PC1-Review  Review Answer Key: PC1ReviewKey Homework:  Complete the review, check your answers, and study for the test next class.

Day 5:  September 12th.  Objective:  Students will determine if a function is even, odd, or neither both algebraically and graphically.  Glue In Notes:  PC1-4 Notes Completed Glue In Notes:  PC1-4CompleteNotes IN Class Assignment KEY:  PC1-4PracticeProblemsKey  Group Practice Quiz:  PC1-GroupPracticeQuiz   Group Quiz Key:  PC1GroupQuizKey Homework: p. 148 #’s 9-23 odd (Part c only) #’s 41-53 odd (Determine even/odd/neither algebraically).

Day 4:  September 8th.  Objective:  Students will identify intervals for when a function is concave up and concave down.  Students will identify local minima and maxima as well as absolute minimum and maximum.  Notes:   PC1-3Notes  (Completed Notes From Class Homework:  p. 151 #’s 85-88 ALL  #’s 95 – 101 Graph with assistance from a device, find the Intervals Increasing/Decreasing, Local Max/Min, as well as find the intervals the graph is concave up/down.  Also:  #103  (TOTAL PROBLEMS – 13).   Video on Increasing/Decreasing and Concavity: YouTube.  Video on problem #103:   YouTube

Day 3:  September 6th. Objective:  Students will identify intervals for when a function is increasing and decreasing including problems involving piecewise functions.  Notes:  PC1-2Notes Homework:  p. 148 #1-8 all, 9-25 odd NOT (c).

Day 2:  September 1st.  Objective:  Students will find the domain of a function algebraically and graphically.  Students will find the range of a function graphically.  Notes:  PC1-1Notes (updated).  Assignment/Homework:  p. 125 #’s 1-13 odd, #’s 21-63 odd.  Show work (including drawing graphs).  Use these scans to do homework if you don’t have a book yet.  2.1-prob.-set-page-1  and 2.1-prob.-set-page-2.  Helpful Video: Domain and Range (Basic).
